Forecast Discussion: A stagnant airmass across the region will allow ozone to rebound quickly on Monday. The dirtiest air resides over the western half of the state. Very light winds from the northwest will keep the highest concentration of ozone pollution near or just south of the urban centers. A few areas, particularly around DC may have enough new emissions in combination with the residual dirty air from the weekend to reach USG ozone conditions. Near-stagnant conditions persist on Tuesday, with a continued potential for USG ozone air quality. On Wednesday, a cold front approaches the region but is not expected to push through until very late, allowing continued potential for USG conditions, depending on the amount of cloud cover spawned by the front and a nearby tropical system off the coast. -MDE
